CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - High Pressure is building into the area to bring more nice weather our way. Look for a “Dome of Delight” Friday!! An old front off the coast and low pressure working along it may try to spin back a few coastal clouds over the weekend but the chance of showers will only be 20% or so. Highs will stay in the mid 80′s for Friday and the weekend with overnight lows in the 60′s inland and lower 70′s on the beaches. There is a moderate risk of rip currents today at the beaches as well. Next week looks to be mostly dry for the start with highs warming into the mid to upper 80′s by Monday and Tuesday.

TROPICS: Keeping an eye on Tropical Storm Fiona. Fiona is not going to jump up in intensity in the short term thanks to the low level center racing a way from the convection. Mountains ahead will also keep it from rapidly intensifying. Fiona will approach the northern Leeward Islands on Friday and pass close to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands this weekend. A turn from the west to the north is anticipated early next week. This storm could potentially impact the Bahamas and Turks and Caicos. There is a chance for it to turn more north after that into a weakness but still early in the ballgame to guarantee this track and we will monitor the trends and models!

TONIGHT: Clear & Cool, Low 64 inland, 72 coast.

FRIDAY: Sunny Sky. High 86.

SATURDAY: Partly Cloudy. Mainly Dry. High 85.

SUNDAY: Sun & Clouds. A Few Showers Possible. High 86.

MONDAY: Lots of sunshine, High 88.

TUESDAY: Lots of sunshine, High 90.
